What are the important things to remember while driving a rented car in Langkawi?

Roads are not exactly plentiful in Langkawi, and most of them are unnamed. Although, if your rented car has satellite navigation, then you should be fine with inputting the location or landmark you want to visit and letting technology work its magic.

Langkawi roads are also slushy with mud in monsoons, so a deft driving ability is recommended.

For the aforementioned reason, you should also check beforehand that the rental company has proper tires fit on the car you want to rent.

Driving at night can be especially tricky, given the abundance of animals that abound freely on and around Langkawi roads and streets.
